Our joint exhibition at the Dolphin shopping centre Poole opened yesterday. Poole and Easy Dorset Art Society and Broadstone Art Society have worked together to put on and exhibition of sketch books and finished paintings in the community space called Gather. There are demonstrations by artists every day. Yesterday afternoon I was doing urban sketching and I will be there again on Wednesday and Friday showing techniques and encouraging visitors to have a go. On Saturday children are invited to participate in crafts with two experienced artists from Broadstone Art Society so bring your children along for some fun with paint and scissors.
